AbstractBACKGROUND: The bipolar radiofrequency with suction and light source device was cleared for use by the Food and Drug Administration for temporary reduction of cellulite. It has a reshaping effect on thighs, buttocks, abdomen and arms. This leads to temporary reduction in the circumference of the treated area. The purpose of this study is to evaluate its performance for temporary circumference reduction, as well as improvement of cellulite appearance. STUDY: 20 patients were recruited for 6 treatment sessions at weekly intervals. Patients were treated in two areas. The defined areas are both thighs, abdomen, buttocks, both arms and love handles. Subjects’ weight, photography, cellulite level, circumference measurements were taken before 1st, 4th, 6th treatment and at 4 week follow up. Patient satisfaction was rated. RESULTS: 14 subjects completed the course of treatment. 12 subjects treated their abdomen, 9 love handles, 4 buttocks and 3 thighs. The mean abdominal circumference went from 91.60 cm to 90.30 cm at treatment 6 and 90.84 at 4 weeks follow-up. Both are statistically significant with a p-value of 0.010 and 0.036 respectively. Decrease in love handles circumference at treatment 6 is also statistically significant with a p-value of 0.05. Mean circumference went from 93.1 cm to 92.2 cm. Other measurements are not statistically significant. One case of blistering was recorded which led to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. CONCLUSION: Temporary improvement in body contour can be achieved by a course of 6 treatments. Abdomen and love handles are the two areas that had the best outcome.
